Object of the Summer Session 

The Summer Session is intended to provide instruction for 
regular students of this and other colleges and universities and 
for those engaged during the winter in teaching. 


The location of Shaw University is especially convenient, sit- 
uated practically in the heart of the Capital City. No car 
or cab fares will be necessary to visit the shopping district, State 
Department of Education, State Museum, State Library, Hall of 
History, and other places of educational interest. An exceed- 
ingly bracing and healthful climate makes this city an ideal place 
for residence and study. 


The faculty for the Summer Session will be composed pri- 
marily of the regular members of the Shaw University faculty 
together with additional specialists in the field of education. 


A well equipped and attractive library, consisting of more 
than 14,000 books, is located in Library Hall. It is supervised 
by a competent librarian who aids the students in their reference 
work and guides them in their general reading. Magazines and 
daily and weekly newspapers provide ample means for the in- 
formation of students on current events. It is the aim of the 
Administration to make the library one of great usefulness in 
the education of the students in technical knowledge and gen- 
eral culture. 

Observation and Directed Teaching Facilities 

Opportunity for observation and directed teaching under the 
supervision of the University Summer School is provided 
through the Raleigh Public School System. 

Dormitory Facilities 

Estey Hall is the young women's dormitory. Every effort is 
made to give to this dormitory the atmosphere of a Christian 
home. Estey Hall is under the supervision of the Director of 
Women's Activities. 

In Estey Hall there are two cheerful parlors, one for students 
and one for teachers, guest rooms, and, in the basement, a 
laundry which is open to women students. 

Shaw Hall is the home of the college young EierL It i& raider 
the supervision of the Director of Men's Activities assisted by a 
matron who attempts to bring something of a homelike atmos- 
phere to the dormitory. There are rooms set aside for each: of 
the national fraternities, and these, along with trie Y. M. C". A. 
room, furnish social centers that make dormitory life more pleas- 


Tennis, Croquet, Baseball, and sightseeing tours are among 
the forms of recreation provided by the University. 

In addition, several social events are held for the students and 
faculty of the Summer Session. 

Teachers' Employment Bureau 

The bureau has secured this year a large number of teaching 
and administrative positions for students and former students. 
It was established five years ago and exists for the double pur- 
pose of supplying the needs of school officials over the State and 
of helping students and former students to find teaching and 
administrative positions for which they are best fitted. 


Assembly exercises are held in the University Auditorium on 
Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. All students are required 
to attend these exercises. Special addresses are arranged, and 
interesting musical recitals presented. 


Teachers are requested to bring their certificates, credit slips 
from summer schools previously attended, diplomas or other 
evidences of training. These will be needed for registration the 
first day. 

Registration will begin June 4, and classroom work Friday, 
June 5. No student should expect to enter and receive credit 
after Monday, June 8.

Special courses according to the requirements of the State De- 
partment of Education will be offered to holders of Primary and 
Grammar Grade Certificates — Classes C and B. These courses 
will be set up later. 

The New North Carolina Course of Study 

A special effort will be made to acquaint the teachers in attend- 
ance with the use of materials in the North Carolina Course of 
Study. This will be done, as a whole, through the instructors of 
the special and general method courses. 

Recent Certification Regulations 

Teachers are requested to give close attention to the following 
significant certification changes : 

1. After July 1, 1933, the Division of Certification will not issue 
any new Elementary A Certificates. 

2. After July 1, 1934, the Division of Certification will not issue any 
new Primary C and Grammar Grade C Certificates. 

3. Between October 1, 1935, and August 31, 1936, no teacher in 
service shall be given credit for more than twenty semester 
hours, a teacher in service being defined as one who teaches 
six or more months during the period; and after August 31, 
1936, no teacher in service shall be given credit for more than 
twenty semester hours during any one year between September 
1st of that year and August 31st of the following year. This, it 
must be understood, is the maximum total credit from all 

4. Between October 1, 1935, and August 31, 1936, no teacher in 

service shall be given credit for more than twelve semester 
hours through extension class teaching or correspondence 
study instruction, with a further limitation of not more than 
eight semester hours to be earned between October 1, 1935, and 
June 1, 1936. After August 31, 1936, no teacher in service shall 
be given credit for more than twelve semester hours of exten- 
sion class teaching or correspondence study instruction in any 
year between September 1st of that year and August 31st of 
the following year, with not more than eight semester hours 
permitted between September 1st and June 1st following. 

Note 1 — Between October 1, 1935, and June 1, 1936, and between September 1st and June 
1st for any year thereafter, the teacher in service should not register for more courses than 
would give credit for a total of eight semester hours if and when completed. 

Note 2 — Between September 1st and June 1st of any year, the teacher in service should 
distribute her work in such a way that at no time, while actually teaching, would she be 
able to tarn the equivalent of more than one semester hour's credit during any one month. 
Any attempt to earn credit for eight semester hours during a fractional part of the teaching 
year would be looked upon with disfavor. 

5. Not more than forty percent of the credit necessary to raise a 
certificate from one class to another may be earned through ex- 
tension class teaching or correspondence study instruction, pro- 
vided this limitation shall not prohibit any teacher from earn- 
ing- eight semester hours credit through extension class teaching 
or correspondence instruction between October 1, 1935, and June 
1, 1936. 

6. The original professional credit necessary for an administrative 
or supervisory certificate may not be secured through extension 
class teaching or correspondence study instruction. 

7. Credit for a total of not more than sixteen semester hours may 
be allowed for extension class work taken under the same in- 

S. Beginning with September 1, 1936, no extension class course 
will be accepted for certificate credit that prior to registration 
is not approved by the State Department of Public Instruction 
and the county or city superintendent in whose school system 
the work is to be given. 

9. As of July 1, 1939, and thereafter, the Class A Certificate built 
up from a lower grade certificate will be based upon a satis- 
factory completion of the requirements for a degree from a stand- 
ard college, along with, or in addition to, the specific certificate 
requirements. It is suggested that those teachers in service 
who may not reasonably be expected to qualify for the Class A 
Certificate prior to July 1, 1939, arrange their program of 
studies in cooperation with the institution from which they 
would like to obtain the degree. 

10. For the past several years, credits earned as late as October 
1st have been applied on a certificate for that year. Beginning 
with September 1, 1936, credits earned after September 1st 
will not be applied on a certificate for that school year. This 
means that credit to be applied on a certificate for the school 
year 1936-37 must be earned not later than September 1, 1936. 
Institutions are urged to report the credit with the least pos- 
sible delay after September 1st.
